Uttarakhand was also the ancient Puranic term for the central stretch of the Indian Himalayas Its peaks and valleys were well known in ancient times as the abode of gods and goddesses and source of the Ganges River Today it is often called the Land of the Gods (Dev Bhoomi) because of the presence of a multitude of Hindu pilgrimage spots The Pauravas Kushanas Kunindas Guptas Katyuris Palas, the Chands and Parmars or Panwars and the British have ruled Uttarakhand in turns
I was quite enchanted by the Dev Bhoomi on my short visit to the state.
Standing on the banks of Holy Ganga and with a mesmerising view of the mountains, on a pleasantly chilly early morning, I lost myself to the heavenly sensation and felt that yes, this is Dev Bhoomi.
I am yearning for a more comprehensive and extensive visit to the state. Hope the gods will shower that blessing on me.
